ADP launches diversity analysis tool, and more


HR and payroll technology provider ADP has added several new tools to its DataCloud platform. The new ADP DEI dashboard and the Organizational Benchmarks Dashboard help analyze diversity within a workforce and better allocate staff resources.

“ADP DataCloud empowers our customers to access their employees’ data, then uses data science and artificial intelligence to reveal ideas and trends,” said Jack Berkowitz, senior vice president of product development at ‘ADP for ADP DataCloud, in a statement. “The new features show how ADP DataCloud helps answer common business questions that were previously difficult to answer or that required custom analysis projects. These issues, involving diversity and organizational comparisons with other companies, represent some of the most important issues in the workplace today.

Diversity, equity and inclusion

ADP’s new DEI dashboard is designed for businesses to see the makeup of their workforce and identify if any groups are under-represented using a question-and-answer format. The dashboard includes tabs with questions such as “How diverse is your workforce?” “” What areas of my organization are not diverse? And “How diverse is my organization’s leadership mix?” By clicking on any of these tabs, they gain access to a comprehensive view of their workforce, providing additional data to analyze and answer these questions for their organization.

The DCI dashboard breaks down staff diversity by organization, department and job level. Users can view equity measures and break down data by categories such as ethnicity, gender, age, disability, or veteran status. The idea is that these tools show trends over time and allow companies to better define, track and extend their diversity, equity and inclusion goals.

“Now more than ever, companies need to take a science-based approach to their diversity and inclusion efforts,” said Bob Lockett, director of diversity and talent at ADP, in a statement. “The right data tools can improve the way they assess the makeup of their workforce and inform the decisions they need to help them meet their diversity goals and ultimately make a huge difference. for their employees and their community. “

And “What percentage of total labor costs do my peers spend in specific functional areas, such as sales and marketing?”

This dashboard taps into ADP’s vast real-world workforce data set to provide the following benchmarking capabilities:

  • Compare organizational measures such as headcount, labor costs and turnover with similar companies;
  • Advise which jobs or departments managers should invest in;
  • Identify areas of the company that could be overinvested and recommend the redeployment of capital in other jobs; and
  • Analyze strengths and opportunities for improvement, including possible savings through an outsourcing plan.
